About me

  • Dr Adriana Candeias is the founder of Applied Sustainable Health (ASH), a therapeutic platform to support clients achieving and maintaining natural wellbeing.
  • Nowadays, Adriana is a highly sought after holistic therapist and coach for her insightful and research-based knowledge, intuition and creativity in guiding her clients transforming processes.

Dr Adriana Candeias is the founder of Applied Sustainable Health (ASH), a therapeutic platform to support clients achieving and maintaining natural wellbeing. Following her exceptional success when applying tools such as advanced nutrition and energetic medicine to a vast range of chronic conditions, Adriana developed an unique approach which integrates the most recent findings in human science, the ancient medicinal paradigms and anthropological interpretations of traditional societies.  She merges her deep comprehension of emotional-biological processes and her client’s modern life style needs.

After years dedicated to Academic research in the fields of biology & physiology, yearning for more human connection and seeing the practical applications of her research, Adriana left the labs and computing and trained as a therapist at the College of Practical of Homeopathy (CPH, London) and found Applied Homeopathy as an clinical approach combining the understanding of ancient and modern natural therapies to support patients with a wide diversity of conditions.

Throughout a decade of practise she specialised in Primal Health, Gut and Psychological/physiological Syndromes (GAPSTM), and Oxytocin-related metabolisms. She has gradually incorporated coaching techniques which confirm the link between the mind and the immune response and has created the Sustainable Empowering Transformations programme (SET), coaching clients holistically during the most important transition phases of life.

At a community level, Adriana co-found and directs YONOCO (Yoga – Nourish – Connect) events and leads a social media based feminine group derived from her unique “Women-of-Me” programme.

Nowadays, Adriana is a highly sought after holistic therapist and coach for her insightful and research-based knowledge, creativity and intuition in guiding her clients’ transforming processes.

Following her passion for teaching, Adriana became an affiliated tutor at The College of Practical Homeopathy (London), where she also developed “Research Methods for Modern Health Consultants”. Besides being a supervisor, she regularly presents CPD seminars to health professionals on politically non-correct themes, challenges old psychotherapeutic methods and offers workshops for the general public on a vast range of themes, normally combining several aspects of our fundamental wellbeing, spreading the belief that healing derives from pleasure.

Adriana’s multidisciplinary background and her endless curiosity for life has provided her with a wide range of resources to practice as a therapist and a coach. In her coaching programmes, you will benefit from her particular training and interest in Primal Health, GAPS diet, Co-active and desire coaching, conscious-sexuality, Tao, Kundalini and… home-made chocolate.

When she is not coaching, she is preparing the world’s best sauerkraut to share with friends or at a Milonga with her tango shoes. Additionally to her nearly 20 years path on natural living, body movement, and tradicional cooking, Adriana is daily inspired in her roles as a mother and human lover.


Adriana is a forward free-thinker, and a genuinely empathetic, intuitive practitioner. I have been very inspired for her knowledge and support in the choices I make for my family and myself. I would recommend her for her sensitivity, intelligence and non-judgemental complete openness as a consultant, which is rare and precious.

When I first met Adriana I was looking for an alternative to allopathic medicine in dealing with my family’s health issues. In her I found someone I trust, who works with our strengths making us all healthier. Now, we are rarely sick, we look at health and illness in a different, responsible way. I can always count on Adriana to make me aware of all aspects of my health as well as challenging me to put important changes in place towards our wellbeing.

I came to see Adriana to address my general well being, mainly affected by intestinal and gynaecological symptoms, which were not eased by pharmaceutical drugs. Her recommendations were well explained and easy to follow, and my questions were always answered clearly. I have kept the changes in diet she suggested since then. Some special moments of the therapy include her useful support in emotionally challenging times, as well as my recovery from most physical symptoms I initially presented. The knowledge Adriana possesses regarding the functioning of the body leads to our global holistic wellness.

It was great to meet Adriana and every session with her has been very informative, thorough and inspiring. I have since felt secure knowing that when needed, me and my family would get reliable advice which may be hard to find elsewhere. The scope of Adriana’s knowledge is extremely impressive, and comes across in a very holistic and accessible way that feels totally personalised to my needs. She is a very kind, generous and warmhearted person. I have recommended Adriana to many of my friends and family.

I can’t tell you how much I have been enjoying life, love and work. It is like you’ve taken me apart, smoothed out all the bumpy bits and put me back together. Quite amazing!

Jo Taylor, business consultant

Adriana facilitated a space for me to perceive my own life and well being as a working ‘whole’. All aspects of my life were taken into consideration in a safe and non judgmental container where I could view myself objectively. My key experience of her therapy was crucially empowering. Adriana has a rare intrinsic sense of the ‘whole’ as mattering, which is vital in the healing process, no matter what the ailment…

Meeting with Dr. A T Candeias guided me through my questions and helped me to have a perspective into my projects. Dr. A T Candeias recommended me effective remedies as well as books to read for further information, which were a valuable suggestion. I found a good listener and good advice which has guided me in the long term. I deeply recommend Dr. A T Candeias.

I have seen many practitioners in over 40 years seeking treatment long term underlying conditions, and it has been hard to find professionals whose prescribing adequately addresses the complex issues we face in our physical and emotional health. Thankfully naturopathy has moved on hugely in recent years and I believe complex prescriptions that treat all levels is the way forward. Adriana’s knowledge and prescribing are very solid, my chronic fatigue is improving and I have benefited enormously under her care. I would not hesitate to recommend her.
